"While the rest of the human race are descended from monkeys, redheads derive from cats." - Robert A. Heinlein

"All throughout history, from Reuben to Robbins, redheads have been recognized as a rare breed. Blondes may have more fun, brunettes may be brainier, but when it comes down to raw energy, creativity, and personality ... you just can't beat a redhead well, you can, but beware ... she'll probably beat you back!" -Redheads Unlimited

redhead, reporting in.
mom, me, and my little brother are all redheads... well, lil' brother has taken to dying his hair black.
traitor.

also, is it true that if two redheaded people have a child together, that child wont have red hair? always wondered about that.

Depends on if the gene is recessive or not.

I'm pretty sure redheadedness is a recessive gene. Explains why redheads are relatively rare.

Redheads are only as rare as Hair Dye allows. True redheads are another matter, but considering its hard to find one without matching curtains to the carpet, their rarity might be due to other factors.

Redheadedness is most certainly a recessive gene, which gives two redheaded parents a (roughly) 50% chance to have redheaded offspring.

Which is why true redheads are so rare. Even if both parents are redheads, it's still a coin toss.

Which makes them all the more alluring.

Very good point. I'm attracted to redheads for the same reason I'm attracted to anyone interesting- they stand out, and aren't like everyone else around them.

Chat mentioned he/she wasn't sure if he/she was a he or a she. I think we'll need to see those muffins he/she has on his/her chest in order to form a conclusive opinion.
